Oct. 27, 2012






WILMINGTON, N.C. (Seminoles.com) –
Florida State freshman Olivia Hullert was at even par through nine holes and the Seminole women’s golf team had moved up one spot in the team standings before heavy rains in the area brought the second of the Seventh Annual Landfall Tradition on the Jack Nicklaus Course at the Country Club of Landfall to a halt on Saturday afternoon.

The driving rain and heavy winds from Hurricane Sandy forced tournament officials to postpone the completion of the second round until Sunday. The plan is to re-start the second round at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday and finish the event as a 36-hole tournament. That plan is contingent on ant further weather conditions in the area.

Hullert (Baerum, Norway) birdied her first hole of the round and was under par until scoring a bogey on her ninth and final hole of the afternoon. She carded seven consecutive holes of par in some of the most trying weather conditions imaginable. Hullert has now carded two birdies and 20 holes at par or better over the course of her first 27 holes of the event.

Hullert had moved into a tie for 20th place in the individual standings with her even par score during the start of the second round after closing the first round in a tie for 36th place.
